In the first row we map the string? predicate on a list of atoms (number, symbols, and strings). This
reveals (in terms of boolean values) which of the elements that are strings.
In the second row of the table, we map a 'multiply with 2' function on a list of numbers. The third row is more interesting. Here we map the composition of li , b , and red font coloring
on the elements a, b, and c. When passed to the HTML mirror function ul , this makes an unordered list
with red and bold items. Notice that the compose function used in the example is a higher-order function that can compose two or more functions.
The function compose from lib/general.scm is such a function.
Notice also that the HTML
mirror function ul receives a list, not a string. The fifth and final row illustrates the raw HTML output, instead of the nicer rendering of the unordered list,
which we used in the third row.
